STEM Club

Are you studying science, technology, engineering or math? Even if you’re not majoring in a STEM field, you can still join the STEM club. Membership is free and any student can join at any time.

The STEM club promotes interest in science, math, technology and engineering and provides career guidance and guest speakers from within STEM fields.

Every semester STEM takes several field trips with one being overnight in the spring semester. Example field trips are going to the Palo Verde Nuclear power plant, Lockheed Martin facility, Honeywell facilities, JPL (NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab) in Pasedena California, La Brea Tar Pitts in Los Angeles, Kitt Peak Observatory in Tucson and BioSphere II.

As a member of this club, you’ll also have the opportunity to hear from several guest speakers per semester and enjoy movie and pizza days.
